Matthew 25: 35-40

"I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me." -Matthew 25:35-36

"Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink? When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee? Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee? And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me." -Matthew 25:37-40

A slight set-back

On Saturday, Jim, Barb, Lacey, and the children waited for eight hours at the embassy to get on their flight, only to find out it had been canceled. We are hoping they will fly out toward the end of the week. We have to remember, nothing is ever for sure in Haiti until it's history! Commercial flights are running, but they are booked up way in advance.

I met up with Cheryl Ankenbauer and family from Michigan. They are adopting Rosena (13) below, and Jim and Lacey will be escorting Rosena to Florida as well. The Ankenbauers invited me to stay with them at their parents' home at Marco Island. It's beautiful here. I now have two new nieces: Kate and Beth! (and they have 17 new cousins! ha ha) The girls are so excited to meet their new sister, Rosena! It has been such a blessing to be with them while waiting! The Lord is so good. I will be sure to let you all know about any updates as soon as possible.

Can you believe how happy they are, even after such a disappointing day?
